Friday Funny – Farmer answers Greenpeace fracking protesters with manure sprayer

This farmer decided to fight B.S. with B.S., literally.

Josh writes: Emma Thompson is in the news again with her mobile bake off protest against fracking in Lancashire.

The actress joined Greenpeace fracking protesters by occupying private land slated for gas exploration that had been posted as “no trespassing” by court injunction, even mugging for cameras as they climbed over the fence.

Maybe ‘CS for BS’. A couple of years ago during our Heritage Days weekend I was standing on the sidewalk down town when a chicken poop truck drove by. As it did you could here a couple of tourists loudly complaining about the rather noticeable odor. A couple of local ladies were standing next to me. I had to laugh when one of ’em told the other: “Smells like money to me.” And her companion responded: “Sure does, don’t it.” … Guess it’s all in your perspective.

Those who identify as liberal are mere shadows of their former selves. It’s as if they’ve abandoned their core values and have gone full-on authoritarian. In fact, I think more right leaning people are more liberal, in the traditional sense, than those who claim to be liberal and this isn’t the first time we’ve gone through a polar flip…I think the last time we did was back in the 60s?

When I was a pup people would describe themselves as small ‘l’ liberal or small ‘c’ conservative and we would know approximately where they stood.
These days, it’s hard to know what ‘liberal’ means. It may be one of those words whose meaning might have changed (more than once).

At one time most Liberals were what some today refer to as “Classical Liberals” (a dying or perhaps dead breed), that is those Liberals who believed in Liberty, not Statism. Unfortunately many Conservatives today are also Statists, although to a lesser degree than today’s Liberals. Both “Classical Liberals” and “Classical Conservatives” are on the endangered list especially with most of today’s politicians. You certainly wouldn’t call the current Conservative British PM a Classical Conservative..

When I was at primary school (mind you that was on the other side of the Iron Curtain) if anyone held pencil the way that policemen does, it would get a ticking off with a long (about 50cm) wooden ruler, known as the ‘enforcer’. We all had to learn to write holding pencil with thumb on one side, index and middle finger on the other, with remaining two fingers folded under. Kids had to learn from very young age to obey the authority.

“Subject to a court injunction” means a violation is technically “contempt of court” – an infraction which is entirely subject to the decision of the judge (no jury required) and which has no sentencing guidelines. There is photographic evidence that they were aware of the injunction and chose to disregard it anyway. No plea required.

I presume the Thompson sisters walked to the farm, or rode bicycles with no steel or aluminum in them. And that the clothes they are wearing are made out of cotton or wool fabrics only prepared entirely from water wheel driven power. And Sophie is not really cooking on a metal stove using propane, is she? Without petroleum fuels, these hypocrites would be standing naked in a field cooking over a wood fire. There is a certain special kind of ignorance that goes along with this sort of stance.

Spinning and weaving can be done by hand, no power required. The skills are as old as human civilization but I seriously doubt these modern greenies have ever seen a wheel or loom except as a prop in a movie, much less would know how to use them. And evennif they did, it would take too much time from their law breaking adventures to encourage people to reject modern conveniences and embrace that which they know nothing of…because it’s “morally” correct. I’d love nothing better than to take all these idiots and make them pick/shear, bow/comb, spin and weave a shirt out of cotton/wool respectively. After an hour with very little progress made and muscles hurting I’m convinced they will praise electricity. And celebrate all the people in the textile industry that electricity has made possible. LOL.
Or just sit them down next to a retting stack of flax…let them smell it and they’ll change their tune pretty quickly.
We take clothes and fabric that surrounds us for granted but if you knew what is involved in doing it by hand you’d understand and be grateful for the energy to have machines do it for you.
Just an opinion from a spinner and weaver. 🙂

I can think of a few farmers who would qualify. Most of them have farms of less than 400 acres and understand the problems of government overreach, noxious neighbors, and overly restrictive rules and regulations at the local, state and federal level. They also understand you can’t spend money you don’t have and know how to prioritize what spending there is to gain maximum effect.
Sounds like a good background for a future president to me.

For some reason, this reminds me of a nasty case.
A Canadian farmer, Wiebo Lidwig, was rather unpopular with his neighbors because of his anti-sour-gas stance.
His kids were tent camping on his farm.
A bunch of teenagers trespassed on his farm and menaced his kids by driving a pickup truck at them.
One of the trespassing teenagers was shot to death.
The police never found the weapon and could not identify the shooter. No charges were laid. link
I have no clue how the case would have gone if the shooter had been identified. It probably would depend on the quality of Ludwig’s lawyer. It isn’t a stretch to call a pickup truck a deadly weapon. (but I am not a lawyer)
In any event, in every jurisdiction I am aware of, a property owner has the right to use reasonable force to evict tresspassers. Spraying someone with liquid manure sounds like reasonable force to me. 🙂

Quotes from the Daily Mail piece:
‘Greenpeace’s Hannah Martin said: ‘We don’t need fracked gas to keep Britain baking.
‘We need renewable energy, like wind and solar. We are fighting for this land to remain frack free.”
Solar energy? In Britain? Is Ms. Martin aware how far north Britain is located on the European map? Did she bother checking with Britain’s meterological service to determine how much sunshine Britain gets in a typical year? In wattage? We aren’t talking about the Mediterranean region here, are we?
“But Ken Cronin, chief executive of UK Onshore Oil and Gas, said it was ‘ironic that Sophie Thompson, who uses gas stoves in videos to promote her own cook books,…….”
I noticed that it appeared to be a cloudy day in those videos on the Dail Mail’s website. What is that word that starts with the letter ‘h’ that I’m thinking of here?

With that little spray announcement, every time they plan to protest a fracking event, if farmers are involved they should sell tickets for people who want to watch.
Other than that, every farmer is forewarned on how to deal with unwelcome trespassers now.
Bet the eco-loons sue for damages; I hope they’re denied. I’m sure the farmer can arrange a free plain water spray and some bars of soap, off property.

The farmer should make that a regular event until they leave. Better still, get the neighbors in to help. It could be the best naturally fertilized patch of land in the country!
I also hope the judge that issued the no trespassing order is angry enough to do something about it. What message does it send that protesters can ignore the courts and ride roughshod over people’s rights? Do the town’s people have to get together and deal with them themselves? There must be many who think it because it’s looking more and more that no one in authority cares.

April 29, 2016 1:23 pm

Somebody really needs to do something to stop imbecilic actors and actresses from attempting to use their pretended authority to promote the causes of international socialism.
“{Emma Thompson] took a swipe at old Blighty for being a ‘cake-filled misery-laden grey old island’: ‘A tiny little cloud-bolted, rainy corner of sort-of Europe, a cake-filled misery-laden grey old island.’
As for the right approach to remaining in the EU? ‘We should be taking down borders, not putting them up,’ she explained, before adding that she would ‘of course’ vote to remain in the EU in the upcoming referendum.
Yet despite her assurances, Thompson hasn’t always been such a fan of the vote. In fact back in 2014, the actress said she was encouraged by Russell Brand — the comedian-turned-revolutionary — saying ‘don’t vote’:
‘We’re going to have to have a revolution… I am encouraged by people like Russell Brand saying ‘Don’t vote’. I’ve got to the point where I listen to reports about what’s happening on the FTSE or the Dow Jones and I think I’m in an Orwell.’
Happily no such revolution has put an end to British democracy since Thompson’s comments — so she will still be able to exercise her right to vote in the referendum.” (see link below for more)
What is this issue that she has with cakes?
There she is in the photo eating a cake, and now I discover that she is in general critical of the national consumption of cakes.
Just as she flies all over the world in jet-planes (to collect awards and spend her vast personal wealth) but desires to deny the often poor working British people access to the cheap fossil fuels that lie beneath their feet.
A master of hypocrisy. She couldn’t be more full of shit, if you attached that muck spreader directly to her face.
Since she is so keen on shoving her shit down our throats, then I feel that the image was not wholly gratuitous or unjustified.
The acting world seems to create some of the most ignorant yet simultaneously arrogant human beings on the planet.
They are extremely troubling and dangerous people.

In the U.S. this would trigger an EPA and Justice Dept. investigation and court action against the farmer. It does not matter the legality, it’s the harassment that counts.

Many admire them, adore them, listen to them because they like what they saw when they pretended to be something they are not.
(I remember that, I think it was, Meryl Streep actually was allowed to testify before Congress during the Alar on Apples scare. Her qualifications? She had played a farmer’s wife in a movie. Sad.)
The more the “real person” acts up, the harder it is to enjoy watching their acting on the screen.
(I haven’t been able to stomach listening to or watching Barbara Streisand in a decade or two. Not because she lacked talent, but because the real Babs in real life drowned out anything enjoyable about her performances.
Definition 2 of “The Streisand Effect”?)
I hope Emma shuts up. I kinda like “The Parent Trap” remake.

I was wondering whether the other bloke in the cab was about to whip off the splash plate first for a more “focused delivery”. He was lined up pretty good to fill the entire cook house 🙂

It was supposed to be a pie baking contest that day. The farmer was only delivering the ingredients for an award winning cow pie.

I used one of Josh’s cartoons to explain to someone about Hydraulic Fracturing and windmills and they were stunned to learn that the drill hole was thousands of feet deep and not just a few into the water table as they thought from what they had read on a GREEN website.
Thanks Josh keep up the good work.

Having lived on farms with such equipment I can tell you they stick to hell!!! And it goes EVERYWHERE. I could not think of a better application of this farm utility. Well done!

One of the most obnoxious women in England, becoming literally obnoxious! I’d love to think that she got sprayed, but probably not. However, well done that man! A delight!

Yes, it should be better than the shit chemicals these frakers are puttingn out to the earth. Let’s go down together with our children. As we have nothing to eat. God bless us.

Emma Thompson seems to be one of the small number of actors and actresses who seems to have a brain and some conscientious minds about the world around her. I don’t quite understand people here who think that hurting environment is a joke (soon you and your children will be affected, even now, we have nothing to eat), and it is OK to make fun of someone who takes time and put an effort to address that. This country is doomed.

Your problem here is that fracking does not hurt the environment. One might be sympathetic if it were a real problem being addressed. Keeping people from jobs or limiting cheap energy based on bad science deserves ridicule. Doing stupid stuff like this is simply asking for mockery. I’ll believe there is a problem when they start acting like there is a problem.

“Emma Thompson seems to be one of the small number of actors and actresses who seems to have a brain and some conscientious minds about the world around her. I don’t quite understand people here who think that hurting environment is a joke”
Make no mistake, her only conscientious mind was in promoting her sister’s baking. The venue she choose had absolutely nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with publicity for both her sister and herself. By ignoring a warning sign and trespassing on the farmer’s land (and the subsequent spraying) she not only accomplished her goal but hopefully will be charged and either fined or put into jail for it–for which she will gain MORE publicity. It’s a stunt, nothing more.
Fracking doesn’t “hurt” the environment if your definition and standard is humanity over pristine nature. I personally pick humanity–because pristine nature is dangerous. Ask any biologist, immunologist or doctor and they will tell you exactly what cholera does to human beings, how prevalent it is in areas with untreated water and how devastating it can be to a population of not just humans but animals as well. Talk to a biologist or botanist about plant predation, poisoning and the myriad of chemicals that plants release into our environment that can harm us and other animals or plants around us. And finally talk to an immunologist about MERSA or staff infections–both caused by nasty bacteria that live in our environment and can kill us in some truly nasty ways.
And then go talk to the parents that have lost children due to dehydration because they had diarrhea. Over 100,000 children die each year due to dehydration caused by diarrhea because they don’t have access to clean water.
Pristine nature is not what you think it is. Every species on this earth uses the environment in some way or another and they change it to suit their suitability. So why do you exclude humans from doing the same? Fracking is a way to provide cheap reliable energy so that we can LIVE in our environment and survive. It is the next evolution in our energy knowledge and as long as we have that cheap reliable energy we will continue to evolve our energy production.

A simpler explanation is that Emma has too much spare time on her hands.

Isn’t she the most annoying cow? A few years ago she sent her adopted (black) son to a predominantly white Exeter University…then complained that he was he was given an unpleasant experience. The poor bloke deserves better than to have that as a ‘mum’.
Sadly the experience appeared to be with the ‘Town’ rather than ‘Gown’ – nevertheless the University still got the blame and had to introduce a diversity module or series of events. More publicity in that I suppose. Shame really since Exeter U is one of the most diverse in the country.
